Official launch of the Federation’s Impact report

In this era of austerity budgets and increasing competition for federal research money, it’s imperative for the humanities and social science community to develop its own research impact metrics and to demonstrate its value beyond the confines of the university. The Federation’s Impact report presents metrics for measuring the impact of SSH research. It was conceived and developed by an Interdisciplinary Advisory Committee of accomplished academics and researchers as well as consultations with stakeholders and individual researchers in the community. In this video, Jean-Marc Mangin, Executive Director of the Federation, and Lyne Sauvageau, Vice President of Teaching and Research at Université du Québec, present the Federation’s Impact report at the “Mobilizing Knowledge for Social Innovation” colloquium on October 6, 2014 at Concordia University, organized by the Fonds de recherche du Québec as part of the prestigious Entretiens Jacques Cartier.
